MEDICAL SCHOOL Questions and Answers

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

This question basically is trying to find out your motives (making sure it is not money) as well as if you have direction in the field of medicine.

-Academic attending in internal medicine or family practice do not choose something specific at this time, you have not even gone through medical school yet. Choose something general. such as Internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery (do not be specific), family practice. you have yet to experience all your medical school rotations, so mention that you are open and would like to experience them first hand. Do not choose specific fields such as ex radiology, anesthesia, dermatology, ortho surg, ENT, optho, cardiology, urology, if you choose one of these you will come off as naive and close minded. Also do not choose ER as this can bring up the TV show and make you look superficial.

-Teaching and research is very important to me

-Advancing medicine as a motive.
